Report: Deshaun Watson tore his ACL, out for season

NFL: Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Deshaun Watson’s final game of his incredible rookie season will have been that wild 41-38 loss against the Seahawks.

The Texans quarterback has reportedly torn his ACL in a non-contact injury in practice this week, ending his season after seven games. The 12th overall pick in the draft, Watson had 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions, including his incredible final game in which he had 402 passing yards, four touchdowns, three interceptions against Seattle’s defense, plus 67 yards on the ground.

Watson has been nothing short of incredible this season and the game against the Seahawks was obviously no exception. This is truly one of the biggest bummers in a season full of injury bummers. Houston, 3-4, will look to turn back to Tom Savage, who got benched in Week 1 in favor of Watson. With J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus already hitting injured reserve earlier this year, it seems like it’s another crappy season for Houston on the injury front.
